The world’s most popular email service has a new option to help you get your inbox back online.
Affected by an outage in China that disrupted the country’s Internet, Gmail says its email system has been restored.
The company said Friday that users can access Gmail and other email services via a new Google webmail feature, which it says can help users get back online with minimal disruption.
Gmail users will also be able to sync email to a computer that’s online.
The feature works with Gmail’s existing mail system and is also available on Microsoft Exchange and Outlook.com.
It’s unclear whether the feature will help other email providers recover or if Gmail will continue to use the old mail system, which had a number of issues.
While Gmail is the world’s largest email service, its users aren’t all using it.
It has been the subject of a number the FBI has said it has collected information about.
